Cite Them Right Harvard

26 September 2022

Information for new and returning students

Courses that use Harvard referencing are transitioning from our own in-house ARU Harvard referencing style to the more widely used Cite Them Right Harvard from September 2022.

New students 
New students starting in September 2022 will be using Cite Them Right Harvard.

Returning students
If you are a returning student completing your course in the 2022/23 academic year you may be familiar with ARU Harvard and wish to continue using it. You can check with a module leader/lecturer if you are unsure which style of Harvard is expected for an assignment. It may be that you are asked to specify whether you have used ARU Harvard or Cite Them Right Harvard so that it is clear which style they are marking to.

The two referencing styles are very similar. Take a look at this comparison table to see some of the differences.

Further information and guidance is available on our Referencing page
